True, but to be fair most of what Tucker said isn't unfounded.

But then again, the worst of movements can be inspired by some truth.

A lot of the support I've seen for him has the same consistent theme of Tucker basically affirming their suspicions in a more solid way.

So a lot of people enjoy his alarmist tones because it confirms their unfounded suspicions into something which they perceive to be more 'founded'.

Most of his people probably already have the inclinations already, whatever 'isms' they may be.

his video implied he would be popping up somewhere soon. my bet is Newsmax. simply because all the morons in the comments of the occasional right wing story that pops up on facebook are all "I left Fox News for Newsmax after they let Tucker go"

Carlson’s Text That Alarmed Fox Leaders: ‘It’s Not How White Men Fight’ https://nyti.ms/3p4Dxaj

Tucker's problem is that the job of being a news reporter was being approached with the perspective of a politician - "we gotta appeal to xyz to work within the system, but I actually believe abc".

But media has become so intertwined with politics and cable media itself has a lot of issues

Now depending on your views, you can argue that the right side is worse (I'd agree they're more extreme) and that it is about democracy
but we can't really pretend most of media has pretty clearly taken sides

republican politicians who called trump an idiot supported him for the votes when it came down to it

tucker, as shown in his messages, promoted a certain narrative to maintain his image among a certain group of people

hence, I said that he approached the job of a reporter/newsdude through the method of a politican

also, a humble request
do clarify what exactly your problem is, because usually how this goes is you speaking out of some childish angst and then just changing the point

I bet Newsmax can't afford him.

He should just take the millions he's made so far and go live a quiet life somewhere out of the spotlight.

^^Yes, following such a complaint I made the other day after he posted another NYT link on three different topics. Clearly he thought it was important enough that as many people as possible should read. So I tried.

Wrong. I clicked your link that you posted three times. I read the entry abstract before the paywall. If the full text was available to me at the link you posted, I would have read it. That was the extent of my effort at that time.

Tucker: "Every city in America has become worse over the past few years... Your concern is that Ukraine don't have enough tanks... Where's the concern for America in that?"

Pence: "That's not my concern."

President Tucker Carlson in Moscow to "interview" President Putin. I'm expecting hard-hitting questions and groundbreaking insights from Carlson, and of course complete honesty and transparency from Putin. Will not be stage-managed whatsoever.

This Tucker Carlson goes to the Russian grocery store episode is the most stupid thing I've witnessed in a long time.

Like, it's just surreal how stupid it is. "Groceries are cheaper in Russia", yeah their paychecks are also 5 times (yes, 5 times) less

god damn

I don’t get what tuckers end game is. It can just be grifting he’s already pretty wealthy from a wealthy family

We know from his leaked text messages he hates trump and thinks he’s stupid

Is he trying to enter politics I guess? Position himself as the trump killer maybe? He’s weird and cringey just like desantis

Yeah, but where does the Russia fetish factor into that?

He was doing the same thing when he went to Poland, but it was just as anti-american then... there's a reason we're the New World, there are certain values behind that that bring positives and negatives, but overall, facilitate what we know as America.
